These are important times in Jill Duggar’s life.
In less than two months, Jill will be publishing her first memoir, and we’re sure she’s experiencing very mixed feelings right now.
Of course, there’s the excitement of being a first-time author.
(No, we’re not counting the book Jill and her sisters were working on at the height of the Duggars’ fame. It’s pretty clear at this point that the women didn’t actually write that book.)
But there is also the fear of how the book will affect his relationship with his family.
Jill’s book won’t hit stores until September 12, but it’s already seeing great success on sale.
The author has proven to be surprisingly adept at promoting the project, and her strategy is simple:
Jill is very open and candid about the publishing process, just as she is about most aspects of her life.
Earlier this week, the 32-year-old talked about the anxiety she feels while waiting for the book’s release.
“It got real when I printed the manuscript for my book #countingthecost…it was now one step closer to being there,” she captioned the photo above.
“I cried and prayed about it. It’s been an emotional journey and it hasn’t been easy for me to write about,” Jill continued:
“I’ve been lugging it around in this plastic bag for a while doing final edits. my book, cost counts Coming September 12th! pre order now!”
It is clear that Jill is excited about her literary debut.
But it looks like she is also experiencing some anxiety.
Jill broke up with her parents several years ago, and this isn’t the first time she’s spoken about Jim Bob’s bizarre belief system, or the trauma of growing up in a cult-like environment.
But this is probably her most detailed yet, and the mother of three is probably expecting some backlash from her famously stern father.
Will Jim Bob ever go so far as to sue his own daughter?
it’s hard to say.
He knows it won’t look good, but if he determines that Jill’s revelations are likely to do more damage to his brand than a nasty legal battle, it’s possible the patriarch will file a defamation suit.
Jim Bob has proven time and time again that he will stop at nothing to protect his reputation and his business interests.
The fact that Jill knows this all too well, she was forced to watch as her father helped cover up Josh Duggar’s earlier sex crimes, even though he and his sisters were the victims.
This is one more reason why Jill deserves worldwide admiration for her incredible courage in writing this book.
